Let it Grow.
Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature is The Garden, which tells the story of the South Central Farmers in L.A. trying to save their 14-acre community garden, the largest of its kind in the United States. The farmers began the project following the 1992 riots in an effort to heal the broken community. By doing so, disenfranchised families finally had access to healthy, homegrown food. So, is it any wonder that these farmers demanded answers when wealthy bureaucrats threatened to bulldoze their livelihood? See it at the Circle Cinema, 10 S. Lewis. For more, visit circlecinema.com
Get Small, Y'all. If good things come in small packages, then Tiny Lounge, 818 E. 3rd St., takes the cake when it comes to nightlife. Head to the East Village to enjoy a stiff drink with Chuck Norris, a real regular who you will find hanging on the women on the walls at Tiny. And regardless of the temperature outside, the side patio is alive and happening. Curl up by the heater outside when the weather is chilly; throw down on the dance floor to the sounds of live music when the weather is warm. Point is... things are happening at this bar year-round. And if they aren't, put your dead presidents in the jukebox and start something. Visit Tiny Lounge on MySpace for more information.
Ice Cold. It's been a rocky year for our favorite hockey team. Tonight, the Tulsa Oilers hit the ice with the Colorado Eagles at the BOK Center, 200 S. Denver. The Northwest Division Eagles have a 17-5 away game record - compared to the Oilers' 8-11-3 home record. However, this game should be intense for teams on both sides of the puck. Are we saying a fight will break out? No, but we heard the Eagles' goalie say that one of the Oiler's centers has a bad haircut. There, that should do it. The action starts at 7:05pm.
